@yogesh7607 when we made such decision, we actually had no knowledge enough to stabilish reasoning… we just didn’t know exactly what ngrx did and using RxJS for managing state wasn’t an option in our short knowledge.
but now, a few months later, yeah, I think the manual way of managing state with RxJS would be through services, but it looks to me harder to maintain and potentially hackish, as you have to design that, as services are very flexible and could be used for pretty much anything or any approach.
Redux is opinionated: the state must be global and immutable and any change must always go through the combined reducers, being reachable to any of them, any component can subscribe to any level of the state, etc… I’m aware that can be done with RxJS too, but you basically have to maintain that by your own convention and that sounds pretty fragile to me.
Redux is also veeeeery simple, way simpler than RxJS for beginners or “full stack developers” who do 1 adventure frontend task per week and aren’t very familiar with the code and RxJS’ tricks.
That’s my 2 cents
